Friday Music continues its extensive Deep Purple 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their 1971 blockbuster FIREBALL! Often considered one of the more adventurous and prog-rock leaning efforts from their catalog, it truly rewarded their huge fan base with some very solid artistry and memorable tunes. The classic Mark II line up featuring Ian Gilan, Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Paice, Roger Glover and Jon Lord were on board for this platinum album, which also netted the band one of their biggest hits with Strange Kind Of Woman. Soon after its release, Deep Purple were headlining concert halls across the globe and to this day have maintained their status as the innovators and forefathers of classic hard rock and heavy metal. The songs range from the explosive title track Fireball, to the smasher Fools, and then for some incredible country picking from Blackmore on fan favorite Anyone’s Daughter. A very cohesive effort from this power quintet indeed! For this special occasion, we have included the original gatefold cover graphics, as well as the superior sound as you would expect from the Friday Music label. Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (Stormbringer, Who Do We Think We Are, Come Taste The Band) at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering in Hollywood from the original Warner Bros. tapes, we think this will be one of the more anticipated classic rock releases of the New Year!
